Some Tips and Ideas In Printing Your Calendars

Businesses reach for calendars because, when done right, customers keep the calendar in front of them all year. Successful calendars incorporate a couple of basic principles and take advantage of particular features. So here are a few ideas we'd like to share when printing out your calendars.

The Right Design
First and foremost, your calendars are only going to be used if your customers like your calendar design. The best way to make sure you give your customers something they like is to produce several designs. Landscapes, animals, babies, and inspirational calendar designs are the most popular formats. By giving your customers a choice, they are much more likely to keep your calendars around all year.

High Resolution Photos
A big mistake businesses make is to use anything less than high resolution photos. Calendars showcase a large image. If that image is grainy, pixilated, or otherwise looks to be of poor quality; your customers will notice.
 
To avoid low quality prints, make sure your images are at least 300 dpi. In fact, some business print at 1200 dpi just to be sure the images come out sharp and clear. If your images look grainy or pixilated before you send your calendars to press, they will look that way when they get back from the press.

Logo and Contact Information
Make sure you include your logo and contact information on every page of your calendar. Exposing your customer to your brand is the whole point of producing calendars. Don’t be shy. You don’t have to make your logo and other brand information be too large for it to have the right effect.
 
Consider keeping your logo on the main graphic while putting your contact information in the footer or along the bottom of the actual calendar dates. This keeps your logo in view and your contact information in reach.
 
Final Thoughts
Taking your calendar to a printer is a big deal and a few tips can help make sure you get the most out of your calendars, but just as important is using a printer you can trust. Here at PrintPlace.com, we offer the options and services you need for your calendar printing. Better yet, we back our work, prices, and turnaround time with a guarantee for your complete satisfaction.
